Mango Pudding with Cinnamon and Clove Strawberries

Photos by Alessandra Zecchini ©

Our friends Jonathan and Fiona invited us for a Indian dinner, and I brought this dessert:

Mango are quite expensive in NZ, and not always very good, but in the Indian shop I found this big can of Mango pulp.

For the Mango Pudding:

850 g mango pulp
250 ml water
2 tsp agar agar powder

Place the mango pulp and water into a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the agar agar powder and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring. Pour into a mould (mine had a hole in the centre) and let it set for a few hours, first at room temperature, and then in the fridge.

For the strawberries:

600 g strawberries
half a lemon
1 cinnamon quill
3 cloves
2 tbsp sugar

Hull and wash the strawberries, cut into small pieces and add the juice of half a lemon, one cinnamon quill and three cloves. Add 2 tsp of sugar and stir. Let the strawberries marinate for a few hours at room temperature and then cool in the fridge.

Thank you Jonathan and Fifi for the great evening and food! :-)


  1. Ma quanto amo il mango?Il budino dev'essere stratosferico!!

  2. I do love our Queensland mangoes. I never ate them in NZ so I eat one a day now we live here. Somedays I make a smoothie with them. I also love them sprinkled with sugar and grilled, served with proscuito.

    The dessert looks wonderful.

  3. And thank you for sharing this wonderful treat... Can't wait to see my beloved strawberries on the market next Spring ;-)

  4. This looks incredible! I love mango pudding, but I never thought of making it at home.

    Can I use canned mango slices?

  5. Thank you all for your comments.

    @ Jo, I also told Mimmo on FB where to buy the mango pulp in Auckland (the Indian Veggie store in front of the National Bank in Glen Eden). You can blend the mango slices, but this pulp is better!!

  6. Oh Allessandra
    This Mangocheeks woman loves this mango pudding. Sublime. Another one to keep inmind and to have a go at making, esp as I have a tin of mango pulp in the cupboard. And the clove strawberries, yum.

  7. Looks awesome! I bet it is delicious.
    Peace :)
